Fragile Thunder Trio – new crowdfunding campaign

January 20th, 2019

The Fragile Thunder Trio (Anela Lauren (harp and vocals), Stephen Inglis and David Gans (guitar and vocals)) went into the studio with bassist Robin Sylvester a few months ago, and emerged with a record that includes two long, exploratory “Dark Stars,” a “St Stephen” with a jam in the middle, and a sweet rendition of David’s song “Jacqueline.”

Here is an audio sampler of the final mix.

We have just launched an indiegogo campaign to get it out. We’re looking for a heap of presales – options include downloads, CDs, a bonus live recording of Stephen and David from November of 2018, and more. Please click here and contribute if you can!

SAINT OF CIRCUMSTANCE

That whole epic sequence is listed on the CD as “Truckin’,” but there’s so much more going on! Coming out of the song, Jerry Garcia plays slide guitar in the jam, and there’s a very solid but brief instrumental reading of “Nobody’s Fault But Mine” – and then they’re off to the races with a great jam. Phil Lesh plays a good long bass solo accompanied only by drummer Bill Kreutzmann. Then the jam that goes hither and yon through lots of sweet swingin’ quiet passages. This was recorded June 22, 1973 in Vancouver, Canada, and it’s on the amazing Pacific Northwest boxed set, available from dead.net. (And the “Other One” and “Wharf Rat” that follow are also sterling!)
